Sustainable urban renewal

The most advanced societies show great concern for the quality of their constructions, urban spaces and built heritage.

Considerations regarding energy efficiency and sustainability tend to prioritize the rehabilitation of existing buildings over the construction of new ones.
In fact the last few years have shown that investment growth in the building repair and rehabilitation sector is greater than in the sector of newly constructed architectural objects.

The unique Master course “Sustainable urban renewal” offered by the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Architecture tends to meet the needs of the labour market by educating specialists able to combine architectural design abilities with broad knowledge of revitalization, conservation and protection of built heritage.

“Sustainable urban renewal” is new Master course focused on architecture with particular emphasis on diagnosis, repair, rehabilitation and improvement of buildings and urban spaces. Beside the architectural, urban, conservation contents, the course also includes the ecological content (i.a. Sustainable revitalization of degraded areas, Energy-efficient architecture)

It is a one-year-and-a-half masters course (90 ECTS in three semesters of 30 ECTS each).
